Repentance is a paladin talent available at level 30.

This is a second crowd control ability for Retribution Paladins (after Hammer of Justice), which is very useful in both PvP and PvE, as it allows two targets to be stunned/incapacitated at the same time (if the mob is not immune). However, note that damaging a target affected by Repentance will end the effect. Repentance is useful in duels, allowing time for a quick self-heal.

Tips

  • Warriors can use Berserker Rage to break out of Repentance.
  • Mages can not blink out of Repentance.
  • With a 1 minute duration and 15 second cooldown, this talent has become a reliable crowd-control for PvE - particularly since it's a 1.7 second cast, and works with many races: Humanoids, Demons, Dragonkins, Giants, Undead.

See Paladin Talents for more details.
